Auntie Peggy Has Departed 2003, mercerised cotton,
audio equipment, 2 part looped soundtrack. Aldwych Tube Station, the
Doilies are like dreamcatchers, each knot holding a thought, a memory.
The sum of these make up the history of a place.
The soundtrack accompanying this piece echoed the sounds of people going
by, things rushing though, the circulation of air itself.
It focused the attention on the character of the subterranean space:
angular and mechanical noises, musical fragments, sounds signals, human
voices, echoed from one area to another. The soundtrack created a unique
aural experience out of a real, remembered or imaginary situation.
The piece was dedicated to Peggy, and her lifelong enthusiasm for the
crochet work and needlecraft.
